they keep posting stories that Seattle is in trade talks.
maybe it's true, maybe it's not.
but this is a draft that is deep at Corner. Maybe the Seahawks trade him for a LT(or another position of need) and then move up in the draft to grab a premium corner prospect.
I think the condiitions are right to make this kind of deal just because his replacement could be found in this years draft.
and if a draft is deep at Corner, you are likely to get a good one at the draft table. A team that is perpetually in the playoffs needs to take advantage of what the draft gives you. And drafting in the bottom half of the draft usually means the immediate impact players are limited to the positions in the draft that were considered deep in talent. So if the draft is deep at Corner and you know you will need one in the next year or two, you grab one. you dont wait until next year (or the year after) when the draft class is weak at that position.
Personally, I think they will draft his replacement, and if he's top notch, Sherman will be on the block next year.
But Seattle isnt afraid of pulling the trigger on a deal to upgrade another position of need. And he is 29 years old. So I could be wrong here. If they trade him now, they will still get a very good return. If they wait, they may not get anything of value.
